It’s another hit for Toby Keith.
Toby Keith had a few years where his songs weren’t reaching the top of the charts. When a guy had been doing it for 20 years that was something interesting.
Now, Toby has been coming off two of the biggest singles of his career. And that’s really saying something. He’s ready to follow things up with another good songs off Clancy’s Tavern. This one is great and it should lead well into Toby’s next album in the Fall.
Check out Beers Ago…
Beers Ago – Toby Keith
This is a classic Toby Keith song. It’s got a great hook. It’s catchy as hell. You can’t beat it.
You can never really count Toby Keith. I don’t want to say his songs have struggled on the charts the last couple years because that’s not exactly true. His previous singles have just been so huge that he set the bar high. So when his last couple songs on his last couple records only cracked the top 20 or so on the charts it was interesting.
Now, Toby is coming off two of the biggest singles of his career. We’re talking great songs and people are loving them some Toby Keith. The guy has been around for twenty years in this business and he’s still the best.
Beers Ago is a great Toby Keith song. It’s about a guy growing up learning how to live. He’s doing some crazy things. He’s falling in love. Time flew by and he’s not sure where it went.
Today, Toby is looking back on life as the narrator of the song. It was quite a few years ago when he was doing all these things and also quite a few beers ago. If you like your beer you can relate to this song.
We do a lot of things in our live and we all have our vices that help us get through. For some it’s soda pop. For others it might be an evening doing yard work. For others it could be smoking.
For the man in the song and a few other good men it’s beer. Life goes on and when we look back we realize that things happened quite a few beers ago.
This is going to be a top five hit for Toby. I think it all starts with the melody and this song has a great melody.
One thing Toby always seems to really understand is melody. His songs have great lyrics of course, but the man knows how to craft musical melodies. People loving singing along with Toby Keith songs.
There’s a reason his songs from the mid ’90s are still popular today and I really think it’s because he is so good at melodies.
Toby is going to be around for a long time and I think it’s great. I love Beers Ago and I can’t wait to look back on this song and hear it one day on the radio about 1,000 beers from now.
